I believe that when Jesus climbed atop that donkey he knew this was the tipping point. Up until that moment in time he could have walked back from his cross trajectory. He could have settled for a lesser place in history. But he didn’t. With knowledge and forethought he chose the hard road of the cross and history tipped. Think about what this means over the coming week, especially as we walk through Holy Week. The temptation for some will be to avoid or rush past the pain of Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, determined to leap into Easter. I hope you won’t. I hope you will linger at the table of the Last Supper, kneel in the dirt of the garden, pause and touch the stone. I think embracing the full story helps. Our lives as followers of Jesus are full of choices, tipping points when what we do may just change the trajectory of our lives or the lives of those we encounter, for the better. Will we walk the hard road and choose the tip? I hope so. I’ll see you along the way.
